Residential Care

Oracle Care and Education provides bespoke packages of care and education in a therapeutic environment. We work with young people with extensive, complex and enduring needs who display high risk behaviours.

Oracle has 12 children’s homes, across both our Bedfordshire and Cheshire/Staffordshire regions. All our homes are detached, and offer either 2 or 3 young person placements. Our homes are situated in pleasant surroundings and within active communities, to allow our young people to integrate with a variety of local activities and amenities. Each home has its own qualified and experienced Registered Manager, as well as its own dedicated staff team that provide risk assessed support and supervision.

We offer medium to long-term placements, usually on a 52 week basis. However requests for school term time only placements will be considered where this is in the best interests of the child or young person.

All our staff are trained and supported by a team of highly skilled consultant psychologists who assist the delivery of individual Education, Care and Health plans and guide therapeutic practice in our schools and children’s homes. Staff recruitment and training is underpinned by therapeutic competencies developed by TCTC and our Team Around the Child model ensures a fully integrated approach and collective responsibility for best outcomes.

We are members of ‘TCTC’ The Consortium for Therapeutic Communities and ‘ISA’ The Independent Schools Association.


My Journey with Oracle – By Hannah, aged 17
My journey to Brunswick House has been amazing, as where I lived before my life was a mess. When I moved to Brunswick House my life changed. I am a grown up woman with amazing friends, amazing staff team! They are all my family and special to me in every way. I love living here. I wouldn’t change it for the world. I have had my ups and downs but managed to get through my issues and control myself a lot more. My therapy is helping me lots and I am just a happy normal teenager! I didn’t think my life would be this good but it is so I want to thank my Brunswick family for getting me through my issues and the emotional days I have.

So thank you Brunswick Team, love ya all.
